Women’s professional volleyball team GS Caltex will finally play its first game in the Dodram V League in the 2023-24 season. Coincidentally, GS Caltex will be the last of the seven teams in the women’s division to play their first game.
They will play their first game and home opener against Jeong Kwanjang at Jangchung Gymnasium on March 20. GS Caltex made changes to its roster in the offseason.
Veteran middle blocker Jung Dae-young rejoined GS Caltex as a free agent. There were also changes to the foreign player positions. Giselle Silva (Cuba/Azerbaijan, real name Silva) was selected through a tryout to replace Han Han Moma (Cameroon, currently with Hyundai E&C), who has been with the team for the past two seasons.
The club said, “Silva is a 191-centimeter tall outside hitter with a powerful attack and a strong serve,” adding, “Her blocking ability is also evaluated as good, so she is expected to help strengthen the team’s height.”먹튀검증
Additionally, setter Iris Tolenada (Philippines, real name Tolenada), an AQ signing, is another early-season surprise. GS Caltex will need Tolenada and one of their existing setters, Kim Ji-won, to step up as their main setter, Ahn Hye-jin, is injured.
The team has also made changes within the squad. GS Caltex head coach Cha Sang-hyun named outside hitter Kang So-hwi as the team captain to change the atmosphere. The vice captain will be Yoo Seo-yeon.
Kang So-hwi and Yoo Seo-yeon’s offseason has paid off. GS Caltex won the 2023 Gumi Dodram Cup Professional Volleyball Tournament, making it the second consecutive year the team has won the Cup. Tickets for GS Caltex’s home opener can be purchased through the club’s official website, official application, and ticket link.
